Holocaust Remembrance Day 2014

I was reading the news the last day and I found a surprising title: "Ismail Haniyah, leader of terror organization Hamas considers recognizing the legitimacy of the State of Israel to exist." Ismail Haniyah is the same man who heads a group based on the premise of exterminating the Jewish people. By declaring HIS RECOGNITION of Israel as a state, he claims that those who live in the land of Israel will be able to live in peace. At the same time the Jews of Israel remember the 6 million men, women and children who were taken out of their homes, had their property stolen from them, were starved, tortured, and murdered all around Europe, Asia and Africa only because they were born Jewish.

We will remmember...

Hamas uses bombs and rockets almost every single day to target the lives of innocent Israelis. They fire these rockets, not to target soldiers and officers, but schools, kindergartens and supermarkets inside Israel with the intention of killing as many Jews as possible.

As I share the despair of my grandfather Yosef Ya'akobovich who lost his parents, brothers and sisters during the Holocaust and survived Auschwitz and several other death camps, I feel that I must expose this historical injustice with the rest of the world. Unfortunately, history repeats itself and today I'm worried that Europe and the rest of the Western world are failing again in eliminating bullies from positions of power around the world. We must remember history the way it actually happened; and repeat in our minds that we once believed the propaganda of Adolf Hitler.


Tomorrow, Ismail Haniyah may tell you that he recognizes Israel's right to exist, but not befor he signs another shipment of missiles. The Question is – will you believe the bully once again?
